Two Welcomes and One Farewell

Ian Jarman


Ian Jarman has joined us in the role of part-time Operations Manager focusing on operational business planning and development of policies/procedures/systems to strengthen SCARF services.

Ian has extensive experience developing and managing operations in non-profit, community development, education and training sectors. Working with the Australian Water Association, Ian managed all aspects of organisational operations including HR, finance, IT, insurance, compliance with legal obligations, and governance.

“I am looking forward to contributing to the further development of SCARF’s great work and am excited to be working with such a great team of staff and volunteers.” – Ian



Pippa Rendal

Pippa Rendel has joined us in the role of part-time Program Manager focusing on strengthening SCARF programs by creating frameworks for systematic risk assessment, monitoring, evaluation and outcomes measurement.

Pippa has extensive experience in strategic management of projects, programs and services that seek to improve the health and wellbeing of vulnerable individuals and communities. Pippa has worked in senior program management roles including with the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) and the Cancer Institute of NSW.

“I’m very excited to be joining SCARF. I’m looking forward to learning more about all of the great SCARF programs, and how I can support the dedicated and energetic teams that deliver them.” – Pippa




Both Ian and Pippa have experience working with organisations in transition and are keen to support SCARF in our journey towards sustainable operations.  With their help, we hope to secure funding to further expand SCARF services and support for children, youth and adults from refugee backgrounds.  



April Ranson at her farewell

We’re also excited to share the news that SCARF’s Volunteer Coordinator, April Ranson, has just landed a full-time job as a Judge’s Associate with the District Court of NSW!

Over the past 12 months, we’ve benefited from April’s generous time, positive energy, hard work and incredible support as our Volunteer Coordinator. April somehow juggled this role with finishing a law degree and completing Practical Legal Training requirements in Wollongong and in Sydney.

Congratulations April on your wonderful achievements.  We wish you every happiness and success for your next adventure and beyond.  We will miss you!
